Hi there,

I am a long time lurker, but I've been doing this fertility stuff for so long that I am no newbie!

My DD was born in Feb. 2009 after a lot of blood, sweat and tears (on our 3rd IVF attempt, following 2 failed IUIs and 4 failed rounds of clomid).

I think what helped my anxiety the most was exercise, keeping a sense of humor ( you can actually find a bit of humor in the worst situations) and

Hi. I'm pretty new. I was on TTC 40+ and found it to be a great community but it fell down after IV did their stupid redesign. Now that I'm doing IVF I've jumped around a little more looking for experienced, like-minded gals. My story: I tried 2 IUIs with no luck and IVF so far was cancelled due to zero follies. I had 4 follies for my IUIs so I really hope to do another IVF attempt soon with a better protocol. I'm in "waiting for AF mode" at the moment.

I had a lot of anxiety after the cancelled IVF. I decided that I've been too stagnant while TTC: physically not moving much and mentally putting life on hold. So I've started back at the gym and stopped worrying about it as much. Just trying to live life AND TTC, rather than TTC INSTEAD OF living. YKWIM?

About me: A pixie in the city, 41, TTC#1 since May 2010, married 18 years.


Diagnosed with/surgically removed endometrioma Aug 2010. Sept IUI #1=BFN. Nov IUI #2=BFN. Uterine polyp removed Jan. 2011. Jan 2011 IVF cancelled. No response. 2nd

Hello Ladies,

Below is my update recently posted on the TTCYFC6+ Board. As an update, I had ER today and 8 eggs were retrieved. With IVF#1 I had 13 eggs however my E2 was well over 5000. With this cycle my E2 was about 1700 and the effects of possible OHSS are far less compared to IVF#1. Thanks for letting me share.

Hello Ladies,

Happy New Year 2011 to each of you and I hope this year brings lots of success stories as we travel together on this TTC journey. I have been posting on this board for a while but took a break in 2010. It was very hard especially considering all the love and support I have received from
